The king and Victoria talked with Majed, a 30-year-old physician from Syria who fled to Sweden together with his sisters. Afterwards Majed told that they talked about everything from the situation in Syria to that it takes a long time for the asylum seekers to get answers and how he as a doctor could get his license validated.
- I'm very proud to meet them. They seem very sympathetic.
Majed came to Sweden from Aleppo in Syria via Turkey and Greece for about eight months ago.
- Now I live in Röstånga with my sisters. We learn Swedish and trying to entertain us with ping pong and more. But most important is Swedish.
Governor Margareta Pålsson hosts a lunch at her residence. After that the king and Victoria visit an accommodation for unaccompanied children who seek asylum. The media aren't allowed to attend at this visit.

King Carl Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria - both are eager for a better environment - can feel satisfied. For two reasons:
The King's Chair in Environmental Science beginning to yield results.
The water in the country's lakes is getting better and better.
- The King and Crown Princess have shown interest in environmental issues in all the years, so it was fun for all participants in the seminar that the king and Victoria were with and showed interest. In addition, the king instituted a professorship in environmental science for the 20th time. The holder is Professor Chris Evans, who is an expert on coal impacts on freshwater and climate, says SLU Vice Chancellor Lisa Sennerby-Forsse to Expressen.

I am pretty sure someone is about to begin spending their summer at Solliden. The security dogs have arrived which normally means someone from the family is in residence. In this case I am pretty sure it is the King and Queen.

The king and crown princess Victoria visit Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency in the afternoon on 1st September.
- The Royal Family's commitment to follow the systematic efforts to prevent and manage accidents and crises means a lot to many. In emergencies and crises the Head of State has also an important function for gathering the country and showing empathy and support for both the victims and the families of rescue personnel and volunteers, says Director General Helena Lindberg.
They make a tour of the premises and get a deeper insight of the current issues affecting development in the Civil Contingencies. The king and the crown princess have for many years demonstrated a lot of interest to issues of preparedness to crisis by visiting big exercises and also by actively informing themselves about developments in the area of ​​emergency management.
There is a photo opportunity upon arrival to MSB, and the media can ask some questions of the King and Crown Princess after the visit.
